Self-massage for TMJ disorder, jaw pain, and headache

Relieving Headache Pain

Have a look at part 2 of this video clip at, as well as my TMJ technique video for massage therapy therapists on my other network, at.
My blog:

Have jaw pain, clicking, or various other disorder? Find on your own getting headaches that stay in your holy places? Use the concepts of myofascial release (slow-moving and also angled, no "excavating") to delicately retrain your nerves. Attempt a sluggish pass of this technique twice a day: upon increasing, as well as prior to bed. Let me find out about your development in the remarks below!

    I have this issue for about 2 months ( it may have been longer since it
    has sounded like a cement mixer for a while but had gotten worse 2 months
    ago to causing a lot of pain)Wednesday I was in the ER because of a lot
    pain (6-7 out of 10) the pain med did not work out for me (undesirable
    side effects) but my jaw snapped back into place yesterday(Friday )
    morning making a loud snapping noise
    estimated 100+db snap sounded like someone punched the wall
    my jaw was about 3/4″ out of place on my left side .
    My hearing is better
    but my balance is still slightly off since body will have to recalibrate
    it self over time. but I would instantly lose balance if I closed my eyes
    also lost my balance while riding my skateboard 3 times.
    My pain has gone down to Zero but the muscles are still sore (soreness is
    not pain it”s just a annoyance to me )

    Omg this was amazing. I did not think this was going to help that much, but
    it feels like freedom to be able to fully open my jaw for the first time in
    days 😌

    Thank you! I only have pain when under extreme stress. This helps a
    ton…and you’re kinda soothing and adorable so that helps.

    I have to say thank u for this. All my time in massage therapy school and
    when i was working as a massage therapist everyone in the field just kept
    telling me all that would help would be intra-oral massage or sitting and
    killing myself finding trigger points and truthfully that just made it
    worse. I tried your technique and literally instantly at least a 75%
    reduction in pain. Cant wait to see the results over time….

    I am having a horrible TMJ day! My jaw, neck, and head are all pounding. I
    am long term TMJ sufferer, over 15 years. This video did help a bit so
    thanks. I am wondering do you hear your clients with TMJ issues mention
    that they kind of force their jaw to pop. Not just the pop when they go to
    eat or yawn but to actually manipulate the jaw to pop. kind of like
    cracking ones knuckles.
    When I pop my jaw I get about 20 seconds of pain relief but I do this so
    many times a day Im sure its making it worse. (anyone on here do this?) Its
    a terrible habit, i just cant seem to stop.

      +Jess on a Quest YES IT IS TERRIBLE! I find a really hot long shower helps.
      Just to let the water run on my jaw, temples and neck.

      Yes. This is exactly the same for me except I’ve had jaw problems for 3
      years

      +Ulisses Garcia I have recently been fitted with a "bite splint"
      from a tmj specialist. It is reliving some of the pressure. It keeps my jaw
      bone from rubbing against the socket/ bone on bone. ( I have no jaw discs).
      The hope is that scar tissue will form and act as a buffer.

      +emerald drake Oh goodness. 🙁
      I would hope I don’t get anything like that but sadly I think I might. how
      recently did you get it on you and is it comfortable on you aside from your
      jaw?

      I just got it on in April. Its ok as far as comfort. you can feel it but
      its not painful. The worse thing I ever did was go to my primary care for
      my jaw pain. I should have gone to a specialist right off. Its best to get
      the right help as soon as possible.

    2 days in bed on ambien to ignore the pain and over 20 ibuprofen and so far
    this is the only thing that’s helped a little. I’m going to keep doing it.
    Can I do it too much?

    How often/how much should this be done? Many times a day? Not too many? Is
    less more? Or more best? THANK YOU!! Feels better after few time! Would be
    great to use the jaw normally after decades of pain and not being able to.
